Okay, two pounds down, that is good – but here’s the great part…drum roll please….
I now have a Weigh Down partner! My friend Lacey has joined me in this journey! I can’t tell you how excited I am! (I mean, isn’t always more fun to take a trip, with a friend?) I hope to encourage Lacey as we take on the challenge of living and eating the way God intended for us. Lacey is also an answer to a prayer. Let me tell you why I am doubly excited to have her join me.
Before I started documenting my weight loss via my blog, I started praying the Prayer of Jabez. For those of you unfamiliar, it is prayer that asks for God’s blessings in your life. The VERY short story of Jabez is written in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10. A very insignificant man prayed an amazing prayer. Here it is:
“Oh, that you would bless me indeed and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.”
And God granted his request.
Lacey is my very first blessing. How great is that? I am now able to encourage one more person in my life because I asked God to enlarge my territory. (Believe me, as a Nebraska housewife my territory is limited to my two boys and my husband. I am a far cry from being a Billy Graham type.) But, where I see limits, God sees miles.
So, this is my latest week. I lost two pounds, but I gained one friend. Are you struggling with weight? Would you like to join us? Please, join Lacey and me! Together we can encourage one another!
